Why Is Duct Testing Necessary?
Leaks in your duct system are among the biggest drains to the HVAC system in your Gloucester Country home. It can include flat–out breaches, yes, but also loose fittings, improperly set vents and even just standard–issue wear and tear. The more tightly your ducts are sealed, the more they add to your heating and cooling efficiency: lowering monthly bills and reducing the risks of a breakdown from undue strain. The trouble comes with finding those spots through hundreds of feet worth of ducts: most of them in the attic, between your walls or other spots that are tough to access most of the time. Duct testing from qualified services like Ambient Comfort LLC makes the optimal solution.
Your Ducts Are Under Pressure
Because your ducts are theoretically a closed system, we can use air pressure to determine if any leaks exist and where they might be. The apex to the ducts is sealed off, as are other outlets such as the vents. A fan is then blown through the system allowing the Ambient Comfort LLC technicians to measure the pressure in the ducts. If the pressure is lower than expected or wavers in some way, you know you have a breach and can pinpoint it at least to the pertinent section of ducts. The process can be slow, but it is very accurate, giving you a good sense of where the problem lies and letting the technician plan for repairs with concrete knowledge in hand.
